Hey guys welcome back to my blog! Todays post is a BEAUTY WISHLIST!

This past summer I've been glued to Youtube watching makeup guru's Jackie Aina, MakeupShayla, Desi Perkins and Lusterlux on heavy rotation. I absolutely love them and you should definitely check out their channels because they have really reignited my love for makeup and skincare and I really inspired me to maybe give Youtube a go!, so I thought I would put together a wishlist of a number of products I would love to try and add to my growing (but essential lol) collection!

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer // 30ml £6.99 
I tested this primer in store and absolutely love that it has a cream texture and keeps skin mattified and shine free!
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil // 30ml £85.00
I want this to be a part of my night time routine soo bad! Clearer skin and minimised pores while I sleep? YES PLEASE!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer // Caramel // 6ml £23.00
Well loved by many and owned by most makeup bloggers; I'm persuaded to retire my trusty NC42 Mac Pro Longwear Concealer.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter // Trophy Wife // £26.00
I am so excited for this makeup line and this intense gold highlight says "she got money" and I am here for it!
Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kit // Prestige // £6.99
Nudes & pinks are my staples but its time to get brave with colour & I've seen it look really lovely on the lips.
Maybelline Master Strobe Liquid // 25ml 7.99
I only ever use powdered highlighters and I would love to give this liquid highlighter a try.
Pixi Glow Tonic // 250ml £18.00
I first used this toner after receiving it via a pop-up shop, since then I've used others but I am craving the glow this toner gave my skin & NEED it back in my skincare routine asap!
Fenty Beauty Pro Filter Soft Matte Longwear Foundation // Shade 370 // 32ml £26.00
It's refreshing for a makeup brand to have 40 foundation shades and a picture of each shade on actual models, it really helps when it comes to choosing the right colour.
Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub // 650g £13.00
Home pamper days call for this scrub. It leaves skin feeling silky smooth & refreshed like to went to the spa but you never left your house.
Barry M Glitter Rush Body Glitter // Desert Bronze // £4.59
I am obsessed with glitter eyeshadow looks, I have tons of instagram vid tutorials pinned for just this reason! I am determined to get eyeshadow skills aced this year!

What beauty products are on your wishlist at the moment?

Hey guys the braids are gone :( letting go of the braid life was hard but they were snatching my edges harder than Beyoncé's announcement of her baby twins names...
I'm really in the mood to experiment with new protective hairstyles and I after taking down my braids I randomly decided to do bantu knots with some left over braiding hair using the rubber band method. *Quick tut* (I parted my hair secure it with a rubber band, plait the hair with my own hair and halfway change from plaiting to twisting all the way to the end and then wrap it around itself to form the knot)

I havent worn this hairstyle since my childhood, my mum would put my hair this way after washing and towel drying it. I hated it. Now, I think I kinda like it lol...funny how times change.
